All accounts have been reinstated. You may have received an email confirmation for your subscription. Everybody’s accounts were moved into a free trial period based on the date of your last payment less a 30 day billing cycle to keep it consistent with the expected date of your monthly charge. If there were any errors not in your favor, please reach out to me and I will gladly refund any prorated charges you may be due.
Everybody that was still on the introductory offer has now been moved over to the regular price of $2.99 a month. Prices WILL NOT increase as originally planned at least through the end of 2020. In January, I will reassess the needs of the podcast and make a determination at that point.
Several weeks ago, my debit card was used by someone who went on a shopping spree. I caught it quickly and closed the card down. The bank issued a replacement for my card that never arrived. I then had to have them cancel the replacement card and then issue another one, which I just received yesterday and activated this morning. Podbean (the podcast host) does not accept PayPal so when they went to charge my card — it was rejected. Without even notifying me, they cancelled my account, which triggered all of your subscriptions being cancelled by Stripe (the credit card processor). I have since had the Podbean service reinstated.
Regardless, if you already paid for the month everything still works and you DO NOT need to create a new subscription, which many of you are doing. Please don’t do that that. I am in the process of manually reinstating everyone’s subscription but due to the large number of accounts, I won’t be able to finish until tomorrow. If you’ve already re-subscribed, leave it alone and I’ll ensure that you’re not billed twice.
While this was an unfortunate blip in Podbean’s system that I have pointed out to them — it was beyond my control. I just want to ensure that nobody has lost anything and that you can still continue to use the service as I work through tomorrow to get everyone reinstated. Once again — please DO NOT RE-SUBSCRIBE. If you already have — LEAVE IT ALONE. I apologize for any confusion and heart palpitations this may have caused.
This has pushed back the release schedule by one set. Expect the next Disco House to drop on Saturday. Once again, please accept my apologies.
